Of course, this would probably require a massive redesign of the inventory sorting and (possibly) item lookup code.

But it's what *I* want.
I agree with the general aim, but IMO both your ideas are positively bad.

Leaving aside the massive redesign mentioned above, the right answer is default autoinscriptions. For spellbooks these would be @mX@bX@GX!d!k!v where X is the book number. We could do all sorts of other helpful autoinscriptions as well (like @w0^. on diggers, and so on).
